REGISTRATION opens soon!

You may wish to consider submitting: 

  • NEW! A review of the literature about treatment options for Adult conditions. 
  • Adult health care literature reviews - we have several unclaimed topics remaining
  • Original clinical research findings
  • A case presentation that is particularly instructive
  • An informational poster about a new program initiative or informational update    

NEW! This year the adult health work group is soliciting reviews of the treatment options for adult conditions.  Authors should use the previously submitted adult health review posters (2014-2019) as a starting point. If you are not the original author of the previous review poster, but wish to work on the topic, consider contacting that author and work as a teamYou should perform an updated search to identify publications focusing on treatment aspects.  As some of the previous posters addressed health conditions generally, authors may select a specific condition on which to focus.

(more detailed instructions will follow)

Research Posters Data which is acquired using a research design including clinical trials, cohort studies, chart reviews, literature reviews, surveys, case series, etc. We are anticipating that a number of research posters will address Adult Health Care as DSMIG-USA continues to work toward the development of Adult Health Guidelines and decision-making tools. These posters will be displayed together under their own theme.   

Case presentations that are particularly instructive, especially if related to one of the Symposium topics

Informational Posters Descriptions of new initiatives, program updates, special projects and other announcements or updates, which do not use a research design, will be considered under the theme of information sharing.
